Hew York, Thursday, Jane ?, 1855. The Newi. | The steamship Ail*, from Liverpool, arrived at | ?.wk early yesterday mornlag. Her advisee are to toe 9th iaet., three days later than those revived I. the St. Louie at thia port. The war news ts interesting. The bombardment of Sebastopol was recommenced on the 6th instant, and on i.he Mh Lord Raglan telegraphed to London th?t the French had attacked and carried the Mamelon and ihe White Tower, after des perate fighting and very great Iobb on both ?idea. Further detaila of the operations in the Sea ?f Ancff are given, but they develope no new fe ttore af positive importance. Admiral Dundas has re eonnoitered Cronatadt, and found It more strongly fortified last year. The conduct of the Aus trian military authorities in the Principalities is creating considerable attention and may lead to serious results. It is sthled by Prussian correspon dents that Austria considers hertelf released from ?11 engsgements to the Western Powers, the latter hating refused to conclude a peace on reasonable terms. There are all eoris of absurd rumors respect ing the prospective diplomatic movements oi the Caiman Powers. From Spain we learn that the Carllst insurrection was quelled; but the fact that Catalonia has been de ?fere&}n a state of siege, and also that troops were ?tffl Sating Madrid, indicates the contrary. Tasre had bean another reconstruciion of the ministry, and a forced loan of 200,000,000 reals had been im posed. The revolt in Cracow tad not b:en entirely snp preesed. The popular feeling was mainly directed against the priests. The war news had caused a rise in consols, whieh dosed at 92. Cotton was steady, at pre vions quotations; corn showed an advance; other breadstuff* without chaDge; provisions firm. We publish elsewhere a brief account of the pro- j eeedings of an anti Maine law meeting in Albany, to which attention is directed. There was a fair alter dan oe of delegates from various parts of the State. Resolutions appointing a State Central Committee, directed to make a thorough canvass of the State, with power to call a convention, if cir eumetttLcea sbon.d justify such a course, were adopted. The proposals for the new 8'.ate loan of one m - tton and a half of dollar?, for the canal enlarge ment, were opened at Albaty yesterday. The ag. gngate bids reached $10,912,000, at a premium ranging from 112 to 117.5.9 John Tnompson, of New York, bid for the entire loan, 117.26. Rufus H. King, of Albany, bid for $100,000, 117.28, and $100,000,117.66. Jae. T. Souter, of New York, bid tor $200,000,117.27. Cammao & Co., of Ne w York, $60,000,117 59. The bidders were very numerous. The loan was awarded to the paitfes abovenamed $1,050,000 going to Mr. Thompson. The Know Nothing demonstration at Baltimore last evening was an immensely successful afliir. ( Resolutions fully endorsing the Philadelphia plat form were adopted. Tte Copenhagen correspondent of the Piris Frtsst states that fresh demands have been pre sented by the Western Powers?" demands which may change completely the face of affairs. Amongst ether matters, the suppression of the Sound due* is talked of." He adds, that in threatening to ra> pert the reclamations of the United States and Pramia against an impost affecting ths c immerse ef all nations, and which constitutes one of the most important branches of the Diniah revenue, the Western Powers are likely to influence ths resolu tions of the cabinet of Copenhagen on that surest. After the news by the St. Louis was known ia the forenoon, yesterday, about 2,000 bales of otton were sold, at fall prices. Subsequent to the receipt cf the Asia's advices, the market was unsettled, and ae tranaastlons were reported. Flour exhibited a better feeling, without any change of moment ia price*. Canadian white wheat scld at $2 25, and a tot of inferior Western red at a low figure. Com was about one cent per besbel higher for Western mixed, with sales ot 60,000 bushels; Southern white sold at $1 20. Pork was higher, with free sales. There was more activity and firmness in the sugar market, and the tales reached about 2,500 hhds. and 500 boxes. To Liverpool about 30,000 bushel* corn were engaged, in bags and in bulk, at 5d.a 6|d., and 400 bales cotton at 3-lCd., and a small lot ef 100 bales, to fill up, at 5 32d.

No par ticulars of the capture are given, but there can be little doubt as to the truthfulness of the report, our previous accounts from that region having statei that the savages were assembled around the fort in great numbers, determined upon making a hostile demonstration. The fate of the garrison at the fort may he easily conjectured. They have undoubtedly perished miserably; and the scanty reinforcement despatched some time since to tbeir relief, but which could not have reached the fort before its cap ture, has in all probability shared the same fate, as the hostile Indians numbered two thousand war. rieri. The Indians had likewise committed djpre (fattens upon emigrant trains, one of which was robbed of over four hundred head of cattle, sixteen horses, wagons. Ac , and the parties owning them I eft destitnts in the wilderness. It is evident that a combined movement of the savsje tribes is cn feet to acmihilate the whites on the frontier; and if the general government does not net promptly, it will in nil probability succeed. The new Natal Examining Board commenced at Washington yesterday, but owing to Cie absence of Com. Bacsanan no business was transacted. The question as to the propriety of keeping its proceed ings secret had not bean decided. Very strenuous opposition is baing made by the property owners in Greenwich and Washington streets,-against the construction of the Ninth Ave nue Railroad. An epitome of tho proceedings ue fore Judge Corsica will be found in the law reports. Co:aidersble interest in the result seems to be aaui feited by those doing business around Washington Market, and we are intcrmed that the case is pr?e cuted by a voluntary subscription of the whole of that crowded neighboihocd. The Chicago Courier of the 16t r icst., comes out with a long article recommending Fernando Wood, chief magistrate of this city, for the Fresi ieacy ia 1866. Judge Hull, at the opening of the United States Circuit Court at Cansndsigua, en the 19 th ins.., ia his remarks to the Grand Inquest, alluded to the practice of opening letters while in the custody of th? Pott Office Department, and charged that no man, wcether in the employ of the Post Office De partment or not, was authorized, except in the case of dead letters, for any reason or under any pretence, to open a letter entrus'ed to the mail, or even to detain snoh letter; and his Jionor charged the inquest to present any cases to the oontrary which should come t) their knowledge. Judge Hall, it r. ill be recollected, was at the head of the Post Office Department during the administration of President Fillmore, which seems to give his charge a peculiar fitness. The War N?m. Accordingto the newspapers and telegraphic accounts we receive from the other side of the water, it wonld appear that the tide of fortune has changed and that success after success is attending the arms of the Allies. By late mails we bad accounts of the capture of Kertch and Yenikale, of the entrance into to Sea of Azoff, and as a matter of course of the capture or des truction of every floating thing thereon; the St. Louis brought advices of the capture of Genitchi, the northernmost point of the roai across the Sirwa6h shallows and the mouth by which the Putrid Sea and the Sea of Azoff communicate?a place, as can be seen by a glance at the map, of great military impor tance both as a granary for the produie of the banks of the Don, and as the key in some sort to 1'erekop; and the Asia announces that the Mamelon and White Tower at Sebastopol hive been taken by the Allied forces after a heavy slaughter. Blow after blow seems to fall with power and rapidity. Pelissier is Bhowing his mettle, and is an obvious improvement on Can robert. Lord Raglan, to whom the Kertch expedition is attributed, gaining vigor, and the armies and nations generally are in better temper. Even in England the cry for reform has grown dull. It remains to be seen whether this is one of the usual fluctuations of war, natural at'ter so long a period of discouragement on the part ol the Allies, or the beginning of a series of solid and enduring triumphs. The object of the Allies being, as they say, not to rob Russia of territory, but to weaken her naval power in the Black Sea, that object is of course neared by the occupation of the Sea of Azoff. It does not seem likely, notwithstand ing all the brilliant accounts given in the Brit ish papers, that either Kertch or Yenikale were storehouses used to any great extent by the army of Sebastopol. The state of the roads be tween Arabat, Kaffv and Sebastopol?as de scr ibt d by Demidoff who rode over them a few years ago?forbids lbe belief that any conside rable quantity of provisions could hive come by that route. But It Is quite possible, as tbe English say, that the resources of the valley of the Don have been laid under contribution as well as those of the valley of the Dnieper, and that large supplies have sailed through the Sea of Azoff to Genitchi, or even found their way to Pertkop. This would account for the seizure of the 6,000,000 rations, obviously at the for mer place. The object of the Allies is to lock the Russians in the Crimea. The only door now left open is Perekop. Perekop was to have bi en attacked and seized in a few days. Whether it can be held or not ia the months of June and July appears doubtful. The Rus siaus used to shrink, in their old wars, from leaving soldiers in the ?? vale of death," where a siDgle night's dew olten swept off whole regi ments ; Pelissier, who thought nothing ot roast ing Aians, may not bo so squeamish. On the whole, there is deoided and solid pr> gress on the part of the Allies. It is not probable that any General ever undertook so magnificent a military task as the one which Pelissier and Raglan are now attempting to perform. Their aim is to cut off from Russia, like a wart, the Crimean penin sula, with all its forts and its granaries and its I capitals. Only about a thousand years ago that peDinsula nourished a people who coukl call 200,000 fighting men into battle?who set up an Emperor in Byzantium in play, and kept the Czar of Russia ia a sort of semi-servitnde, he paying a tribute to the Khan of the Crimea. I Now a couple of hundred thousand, or perhaps a quarter of a mi lion English, French and Italians se< k to overrun it, and wrest it out of tbp honds of the Czar, who has a million of men to defend it. And we are bound to admit that they are prosecuting their task and ad vancing step by step, with a regularity, an energy and a perseverance which we recognise at once as Anglo-Saxon. For their sakes it were a pity if at the most critical moment a treacherous move of Austria, set free the corps d'armfe on the Gallician frontier to move down like a cloud of locusts on the ill defended frontier poste on the Crimea. Know Nothing Open Cocncils.?The decree of the Philadelphia National Know Nothing Council, opening, to a great extent, the sul?or dinate Councils of the Order and their proceed ings to the public, has already given a new im pulse to the party. Their kte open tir meet ings m Philadelphia and In this city have fairly inaugurated this new order of the day. In Massachusetts they are about to call an open State Convention. In other States they will, doubtless, do the same thing. Let not the Or der in New York fall behind. They hold the vantsgc ground, now, over any other pirfy in the State. Let them prepare to maintain it by an early State Council, and an open one, for the discussion of their policy fh our next No vember canvaes. The late Philadelphia Council has rendered a reconstruction of things neces sary in every State in the Union as to the State action of the Order in the approaching elec tions. Time enough for the Presidency a year hence. Let cur New York Know Nothings proceed, then, to tike th<Mr sounding and bear ings for November. An early arj ftQ 0p?n S'tle Cmne!! Is the thing.

Bat the troe Interests of the cause is the Noith Star of the Junta, rbo cause of Cuba, sir, is still alive. It ie sueta ned by reason mod justice; it is written in every CuYtn heart, and nourish ed with the noblest passions, whi-.b tee .-puniea govern ment is contributing to kindle and excite by its tyranny and oppression.

Our future ie fall of hope, which should not be sacrificed and frus trated merely to satiety persona! views or idle callosity, or a blind impatient anxiety. Cuba and her indepen dence before ail. P. V ALIEN TE, Secretary of tbe Cuban Junta. Here it will be perceived that while the Se cretary pleads that in our historical sketch of the late Cuban conspiracy and the causes of its explosion, we did not give the exact facts in the matter, he refrains himself from disclosiog them from considerations of prudence for "the cause." We are thus admonished that "the cause" is not yet abandoned, but that the time is near at hand when all the facts concerning ail these conspiracies for the liberation of Cuba may be safely published to the world. From the general tone of this letter, in fact, it would appear that the Junta is still in a hopeful and flourishing condition, and very industriously employed in concocting another scheme for a Cuban revolution in conjunction with a fili bustering invasion from our shores. M Will be recollected that the Cabinet at Washington, upon certain intimations reoeived of the ripeness of the late cojBpiracy, sent out a secret diplomatic agent last summer to Ha vana, with instructions to worm himself into the confidence of the leading conspirators in the island, and to worm their secrets out of them in the treacherous disguise of friend* ship, and that having thus accomplished bis work, be was to return and report pro gress to Messrs. Pierce and Marcy. It is known that this spy did his work very suc cessfully, and that upon his information Marcy exposed the whole plot to the Spanish Minister at Washington. Hence the barbarous execution of Pinto, Estrampes and others, and the im prisonments, banishments, confiscations and terrorism with which the poor Creoles of Cuba were visited by General Concha. Our treache rous administration is responsible for them all. Its blocdy duplicity in this business, black as it may appear, cannot be denied. Copies of the coirespondence which passed between Marcy's spy and Manuel Pinto and others, are, we un derstand, in possession of the Junta of this city; and we are iuither informed that at the proper time they will be published. They will form an ntereating supplement to Mr. Soul6's book on bis mission to Spain. All men will agree that it is the duty of the administration to see that the laws, including our neutrality laws, are faithfully executed; but we suspect that this duty does not compre hend the policy of sending a spy to a foreign country to betray the patriots there to the despotism against which they are conspiring. In the eyes of the Spanish government Pinto, Estrampes and their associates were traitors; but who shall say that their motives ai d objects were not as pure aad patriotic as were those of the Belf-sacrifioing patriots of our Revolutionary war; for they, too, were denounced as rebels and traitors ? At all events, the administration has gone beyond its jurisdiction in sending oat a spy npon tbe patriots of Cuba, to do the dirty work of an in (oi mer against them, at the expense of the United S' ates treasury. In thus going into the Spanish service in Spanish territory, our Cabi net should at least have drawn the costs from the Spanish Minister. We trust that among tbe first acts of the next Congress will be one appointing a committee of investigation iato this bloody buiine.-s, with power to send for persons and papers. Goverxor Rekdi;r and His Halk-Brked Kansas Land Sprcolations.?Our readers wilt remember that we hare repeatedly charged that the land speculations of Governor Recder bare had a great deal to do with the late squatter troubled in the Territory of Kansas, and that all the time he has been held np by the Wash ington Union as a perfect model of democratic purity and excellence. But the truth is official ly coming out at last. "A very pretty quarrel as it stands," between the Com mipsioner of Indian Affairs, Mr. Many penny, and Governor Recder, is bringing it all out. Monypcnny arraigns Reeder as soiling his offi cial robes with bis dirty speculations in the rich lands oi the simple half-brocds of Kansas, who arc under the especial care of Manyponny. Indeed, this guardian of the said half-breeds pretty broadly insinuates that the Governor has been taking advantage of their simplicity to cheat them out of their property. The Go vernor confesses that in certain joint stock ope rations with some other federal officers of Kan sas, including the two Judges, (Heaven pre serve us!) he did buy up several large tracts of land from the said half breeds; but he argues that they are intelligent half-breeds, can speak French and English, and can't be cheated as easily as the Commissioner might suppose. The upshot of the whole matter is that the Governor, Judges and Attorney are required to moke out their defence and lay it before the government, their retention in or dismissal fit m office depending upon the result. The Governor has accordingly gono out to Kansas to hunt up his evidence, and very likely to sell out. bis lands for what they will fetch, or to buy more. We must await the denouement. Such are the Kansas spoilsmen of this glorious administration. Sent out to execute the laws, and to foe justice administered, thoy turn to speculating upon the property of the poor half breed Indians, to the monopolizing of all the nice localities they can lay their hands on, and to such a scurvy free sjil policy in general as to bring the arm* d Missourians into the Terri tory at the hazard of a civil war. We shall see how Mr. Recder ana Mr. Pierce will shuffle out of the difficulty. Mayor Wood asd thx Liqcor Law.?The Major, it sc-me, hoe determined to take it on his own responsibly not. to execute the Pro Libitory Liquor law oa the Fourth of July. Whatever evil purpose or mischance induced tie Legislature to select that day to inaugurate the new Blue Law, it is quite clew that noth?3g could be more shocking to the feelings of Am j ricais than (he disturbanje of the celebration ot the national anniversary by riots oa that day. AcJ that any ra>h attempts to enforce the Liquor law on the Fourth would leid to riots, and bloody ones, the must perverse sup pater of the law will hardly venture to deoy. Hence the Mayor viewing the onrssion of a day as of little consequence and reviewing the means at his power to carry out the Uw at a time when countless thousands will be in the B'rects, quite ready for a row, ha3 come *o the conclusion that under any circumstances the better course for him to pursue will be to let the law lie over till the fifth. But it is said that Governor Myron Clark of Conandaigua will not have it so. It is loudly rumored that, if the Mayor will not execute the law, he, Governor Clark, is ready to take his place at the head of the militia of the State and see it done. We were well aware that the Prohibitory law was a favorite of Mr. Clark's ; that he drew it; was elected on the strength of it; has done little since he took office but get it passed ; and now it appears he wants to exo cute it in person at the head of a regiment with loaded muskets and fixed bayonets. Tnis may be going too far. The constitution of the State does certainly declare that the Governor shall '? expedite all such measures as may be resolved upon by the Legislature, and shall take care that the laws are faithfully executed." But the Mayor also is directed by law to " be vigilant and active

in causing the laws and ordinances of the go vernment of the city to be duly executed and enforced; ' and this elause obviously includes legislative acts as well as municipal ordinances. When two men appear, according to the words of a law, to be set to perform the same duty, it is generally understood that he on whose shoulders the performance of the law would most naturally fall?who is nearest the spot ?ie most familiar with the nature of the busi ness-and would travel least out of the way to perform the required duty?is the mm who is meant. Under this rule of interpretation, the execution of the Liquor law in the city b.-ing clearly " a law for its government" devolves upon the Mayor. According to the common law, the Mayor is paramount in his mayoralty. The political power, say all the old writers, is subservient to the municipal authority in the municipality. And most assuredly, according to the rules of common sense, it devolves rather upon the bead of the city than the State go vernment to carry out a law, which at best is only a mere measure of police. We can quite understand therefore that Mayor Wood should have written to the Go vernor, remonstrating with him against his al leged intention. It is not possible, however, to foresee the result of his message. It may bo that Mr. Clark is one of those men like Neal Dow, who think everything should be sacrificed to liis pet theory. He may come here with a thousand men or so to back him to stop the tale of liquor on the Fourth. We cannot un dertake to say what legal measures the muni cipal authorities might take to prevent so un necessary and unwarrantable a piece of med dling, nor whether with common Berne to back th? m, they would be certain to defeat the Go vernor. But one thing is quite certain. If Myron Clark conies here in search of a riot and has it in bis heart to play the Neal Dow,' he may rest quite satisfied that he will attain his purpose by trying to enforce the Liquor law on the Fourth. The only difference between the two cases will be that where Dow had sol diers Clark will need regiments; where Dow fired a shot, Clark will need a volley; aadfor one man wounded in Portland there will be a score killed here. Mayor Wood has not, since the message which appeared some weeks back, made any pair lie avowal of his intentions. Bat we have the best ground for believing that with reference to the ulterior bearings of the Liquor law, he in tends to guide himself by the advice of the legal counsellors to whom the law directs him to reier in case ef difficulty, and that he will not In any case direct the police to interfere with Import ed liquors. According to the best light which be can procure, the Prohibitory law does not apply to such. It prohibits the sale of intoxi cating liquors, in general, but excepts those which are foreign grown and imported from abroad. This may not have been the intention of the iramers of the law, but it is, aocording to the best advice and the judgment of the Mayor, the actual tfleet of the law as they paised it, and ae the Mayor, of course, and aB executive officers are bound to carry it out. lbo,e therefore who apprehend that after the Fourth of July it will be impossible to procure liquor, will be agreeably disappointed. Of french brandies, clarets, burgundies, sherry, Madeira. Port wine, champagne, Scotch whis key, Jamaica nun, and British ales, there is no reason in life why the sale should be diminish ed so much as a glassful. The only effect of the Prohibitory law may be to destroy the growing wine snd brandy interest of Ohio, and to put a check on the manufacture of native whiskey and rum. But it would not make much difference to this city if ail the Catawba and all the Monongabela now drunk were kept at home. The growers might ieel it, the consa mers would not.

Whereas, The American Cony en lion assembled at Phi ladelphia haying laid down principles for tha guidame of the American party ?o purely national, American and patriotic In tone; so congenial with toe spirit 01 cause republican institution under which we have oteu u-ir tared. and tic perpetuity of whirh we believe to be essentia) tjctbe preservation of thoee cherished bless ingsani liberties for which cur forefather* but'elaud bled, so peculiarly adapted to tbe exigences of the times, designed as they are to thwart the intrgass tind machinations of foreigners, and exorafes that demon of sectionalism which baa threatened tbe very integrity of onr hallowed Union; therefore, be it Resolved, 'l'tattte ptlnc'ples and sentiments enun ciated by the American Convention be, an t they are beteby, cordially approved of by tbe Americana o! Balti more, and that wa wifl ever enceavor to maintain them in all their purity and strength. Resolved, That the American perty fully recognizes tbe ri|hts of the revenl States, as expressed and re served in the constitution of tbe United State-; thit Congress, under that constitution, possesses no power to legislate upon the subject of slavery, and that a ay agi tatkm of that question, whsther within or without Con great, is violative of that spirit of compromise in whnh the loundat-on of oar novernment wen laid, and should be condemned by every true lover of his country. Resolved, That the American party unqualifiedly con demns, ana will ever endeavor to counteract, all efforts, by anyVseet or party, to bilng about a uuionjof ohnrch and state; that it pledges itself to protect every man in the full and fair enjoyment of hi* rtligious rights; and that, regarding as we do the Bible as the basis of all truth and good government, we esteem it as our highest duty as patriots and good citizens to oppoee Its exclu sion Irom our public schools. Resolved, That as tbe naturalization laws have been so long perverted to the bsseit purposes, by corrupt po litical demagogues, as to cause the foreign elements to grow up to be a dinger ma power in our midst, deciding our political contra:* a* it pleases, that there exists an imperative necessity for their radical miilflcalion and stiicter enforccmezt. Resolved, lliat ''none but Americans shall rule Ame lice." Resolved, That it is tba sense of this meeting that the honest and industrious imm'grnnt who seeks anasy'um in our land from the tyranny of the Old World should be welcomed to our shores, but that auch restrict.on should be placed upon immigration as will exclude the foieign pauper* and felons whom the Uzir houies and penitentiaries of Europe are daily emptying into our midst. Resolved, That our wannest thanks be accorded thoee distinguished member* of the convention to whose ta lents, patriotism and indefatigable labors we are in debted for the glorious and brilliant results wa this night celebrate. Tbe meeting la doubtless the largest political gather ing ever held in this quarter; there cannot be less than twenty thonsand people in the square, all wild with en thusiasm. Tbe ground presents an animated spectacle, with its gay banners, transparencies and brilliant fire works. Some of the wards were preceded by a cannon, and a salute was flrel as they entered the square. Among the mettos on the banners, we noticed the fol lowing?"Union and Nothing but the Union," "Sam is in town, and will defend tbe firesides of the sires of '76,? "No foreign dictation;" "Charity begins at home." "Sam is coming," &c. Speeches were made by Rayner, of North Carolina, Broom, of Philadelphia, Boteler, Albert Pike and others from the various stands. Mr Piks mads a telling and popular speech. He ad vocated tbe great duty of cultivating a hearty national 21'rit. He believed, and so did the great body or the merican people, that those who were citizens were better republicans and batter qualified to ad minister tbe affairs of governmeit then those born in other lands. This might bs called prejudios, but if so it was tbe palladium of our liberty. The vital es rence of tbe American lentfment was found upon the monumints of the Revolution, and was nurtured by the wise precept- and admonitions of the fathers of the re p?bU.c' -K !"? on* of thoee instincts of nationality wh:ch God bid implanted in tbe human heart, in tbe mysteries of which tha masses needed no Instruction. Mr. Pike next spoke of the rise of tbe party la Arkan sas, which was first heard of there in November last and now had a majority of 10.C60. As it was in Arkan sas, so it was everywhere in the West. 1 he meeting adjourned at a late hour, and dispersed in good order, every one apparently well pleased with tbe demonstration.

Governor Reeder Again?The President Set at Defiance-* WluU the Correspondence Shows??What Will Secretary Marcy do ??An Autograph Letter from Gen Waking - ton?The New Naval Board. Wbsa I wrote yon that the President had c tiled a council of war upon Hot. Reader's case, and that it had been rerolved that be should resign, together with bis associates, or be removed, I bad every oonflden -e in my source of information, and believed I could not be mit tak en in the facta I stated; bat wh?n I noticed in ths Hssald a statement that Gov. Rssder and his private secretary were in New York, en route for Kansas, I wu puzzim) at ths contradiction, bat still believed my information to he well founded, lbs pubtisatlon of a correspondence in ths Union of yesterday furnishes a solution to tbo difficulty, and proves my information correct la every particular. Secretary Marcy finding that Governor Raeder was about leaving for Kansas, served a writ of ne exeat upon him, in the shape of a letter, la which he informs tire li-iveraor that ?- the President, consistently with Lie c. uvlotion of duty could not allow bis present official relation to the Territory to continue;" yat, in total diaregard of this rntlmation of dissa'lsfac tlon and distrust from the executive, Governor K., promising to attend to Mr. Mercy s note at a more con venient searoo, sets out for the Far West. The cormipou denes not only shows that 1 was right as regards the action of the admlnntration towards Reader, bat also towards Judges Elmore and Johnson, and Mr. District Attorney Isaacs. They, too, era "potifiea to quit'* unless tney can explain away what Qcvernmr Reeder, tie hla letter to Commissioner Man-ir-.r.y, states to bw facts.

Mr. Marcy, aa well might he expeotel, is provakod be yond en dnranco at tbo sang froid exhibited by tho de termined Governor in filing away Lis ante of tbe lltti of June, to be a us wared after he had reached Kansas; and it la now rumored that a successor to Reeder will be appointed forthwith, with instruction* to roach Kan sas by the shortest and most expeditions route, and de liver to Reeder his card of dismissal.
